Random Tuesday/TuesdayTrain…



As always, on Tuesdays, I’m joining up with two of my favorite blog hops.  Just click the buttons at the top of this post to find out the rules for joining in, and to view the complete list of participants.  I really enjoy these blog hops!  Now on to the random business for today…

Today will find me headed to the hair dresser for some much-needed color and a haircut!  I always look  forward to  my visits with Wendy the hair dresser.  I especially love the times when I get hair color, a hair cut, and have my eyebrows done!  It’s like having a “make-over”.  Since I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather lately, perhaps a “make-over” is just what I need!

Today will also find me putting away St. Patrick’s Day decor, while I drag out Easter decorations.  Each time I’m in the process of dragging around those heavy plastic storage containers, I always ask myself: why do you do this???  Then, once I get everything decorated, I’m always happy!  Soon I’ll be surrounded by Easter bunnies, chicks, and decorated eggs…and of course, the year-round tree.  Then I’ll be fine until time to change the decor again.

The weather has been absolutely beautiful here, and last Friday we had our first family cookout of the year.  Is there anything more delicious than grilled food with all the trimmings?  I think not!  My husband’s barbecued chicken is fantastic 🙂  It’s also great being outside right now because those pesky mosquitoes haven’t come out to bite yet!

Last Saturday was set aside to go to Savannah so all the men in Brad and Jennifer’s wedding could get measured for their tuxedos.  Most of us left around 8:30 in the morning in order to be there for the 10:00 appointment.  About two hours later, everyone(all nine of them) had been measured, fitted, and each man left the store one hundred sixty-five dollars poorer!  What a ridiculous price to rent a tux!  It’s just not right when the men’s outfits cost more than the ladies’ bridesmaids dresses–and the men have to return theirs!  Where’s the logic in that?

Last night the new season of “Dancing With The Stars” premiered.  I didn’t think I’d care much for this year’s cast, but they were actually pretty good.  However, I’m sad because Derrick Hough isn’t on this season.  That man knows he can dance!  It just won’t be the same without him.  It turned out that I was most impressed with Ralph Machio (former Karate Kid), and I was also impressed with Kirstie Alley!  Who knew she could dance?  I believe I heard them say that she is sixty??!!  I didn’t think this cast was going to be very strong, but I was pleasantly surprised.

My friend, and blog reader, Cindy, left me a comment asking what my cat, Bobs, has been up to lately.  Bobs has been enjoying these wonderful spring days.  She’s been spending most of her days outside, coming in only at night so we both can rest!  She’s been having so much fun rolling in the dirt that now I have to give her a sponge bath at night! 

Fortunately for Bobs, I haven’t caught her “marking” lately.  She’s very sneaky and very moody though, so I have to keep a close eye on her.  Her spot of choice seems to in be my storage closet, so I  keep the double doors to it blocked with something because Bobs knows how to open them with her paw!   If I ever leave it unblocked, she heads straight through those doors. 

Unfortunately, Bobs has had a little upset stomach lately, and has thrown up twice in the house within the past week!  Ugh!  Fortunately, for both of us, once was on a throw rug, and the second time was on the tile in the hall.  Life is never dull with Bobs! 

I’ve tried very hard to keep Bobs outside only, but I’ve never seen a cat as determined (and crazy) as she is.  She sits outside and claws at the door for hours…just ask my son, Brad, who tried to sleep in my bedroom one night while she clawed at the outside door all night!  Many times I’ll let her in, just to get a break from the constant scratching.  She’s nothing if not persistent!  Don’t even ask what the weather stipping looks like on the back door!  So now you know what Bobs has been up to–no good 🙂  Notice that look of defiance on her face in the photo below…

That's my Bobs...

  1. Our cat has destroyed the weather stripping on the back door. Shredded to bits. He has been grounded inside for a while now… LOL

  2. Our cats are indoor cats – but they keep ‘escaping’ out the back door. Luckily they come back none the worse for wear later, though we live on a busy road so it worries me when they sneak out. 😉

    That’s crazy the rental of the guys tuxes cost more than the bridesmaid dresses!

    Enjoy your mini makeover at the hairdresser! 😉

  3. I’m a DWTS fan too. I enjoy Kirstie Alley. I hope she keeps going. As long as Maks is dancing, I’m still watching. I enjoy Derek, but my Dancing heart belongs to Maks. I loved Edyta and Julianne and they’re gone.

    Enjoy your makeover day.

  4. Our cat is a mostly indoor cat, but she loves to go outside. She is very sneaky about it too. Yesterday, I saw her wanting to come in and I didn’t even know she was outside.

  5. Dang! I missed Dancing With The Stars! I really wanted to watch too, since Hines Ward is on this time round.

    Don’t even get me started on psycho cats! My own cat is as well as all the other cats in the neighborhood and they always end up scrappin’ underneath my bedroom window in the middle of the night!

  6. I’m devastated Derek isn’t on DWTS….I adore him. Impressed with Kirstie too, she’s always been a favorite of mine.

    Thanks for riding the train today!

  7. Thanks for the update on Bobs – it made my morning. I love the picture of her that you posted, and yes, I can see the look of defiance on her face. I just love that cat and I’ve never even met her. 😀

    And more good news, my Pippin has been “under the weather” lately, but this morning he seems almost 100% back to his old self. Rotten little stinker. LOL 😛

    I hope that you have a nice time at the salon. It always feels SO good when you leave after having your hair done, etc. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing afternoon. 🙂

    Thanks again for the Bobs story. 😛

  8. I watched DWTS too…I’ve never seen it from the beginning, just bits and pieces, but I liked it. I hope I’m dancing like Kirstie Alley when I’m 60! She was so funny too!

  9. Hey, persistence pays!

    Have fun with your decorating.

  10. Happy haircut and color Tuesday!! 🙂

  11. Sounds like you are busy making bunches of happiness for yourself and others! That pix of Bobs is classic! I hadn’t known female cats “marked” until Saturday when a neighbor and I were discussing a new cat that has shown up and roams and poops throughout the neighborhood, or at least in my yard and hers. She said the cat also backs up and sprays the boxwoods fronting the walk in front of her living room windows. Eyuuuuuuuu!

  12. Cats always want to be on the opposite side of the door. No matter which side they’re on.

  13. I didn’t have any St. Patrick’s Day decorations to take down but I should get my Easter ones out! It always feels good to have a day at the hair dresser. It is a shame that they guys can’t keep them but I haven’t really heard of many weddings where the boys were less expensive then the girls. I’m not watching DWTS but my dad said Kirstie was good too!
